Thales of Miletus

***************

The beautiful must
submit to ruin . . . Time brings
pain to fierce roses

***************

Repentance is the
bread of pleasure . . . Conceal the
light of mind from God

***************

The success of fools
and villains makes the whole world
ill with common scorn

***************

Life is nothing more
than necessity adorned
with the crest of hope

***************

The snaky heart is
an ornament admired most
for its loveliness
